30 bodies discovered in Durango

Officials in the city of Durango, capital of the state of the same name, have made a grisly discovery: 30 bodies found in a mass grave between Wednesday and Thursday. The original total was 26 before authorities found four more today.
State attorney general Ramiro Ortiz Aguirre said that because of the large number of corpses, there are not enough refrigeration units for the medical forensic services to use. He also said that the state lacks the resources for DNA testing of the bodies for identification, added that the equipment would cost between 5-6 million pesos, and requested support from the nearby states of Zacatecas, Chihuahua and Aguascalientes.
El Universal has the story.
